Description

THE CONCERT SERIES: In centuries past, people of means would devote a year or more to THE GRAND TOUR, traveling throughout Europe to broaden their appreciation of art, culture and western civilization.  Among these adventurous travelers were musicians, who enriched the culture of the lands they visited (and themselves as well). 

This season, Frederick Renz guides EARLY MUSIC NEW YORK in its own version of THE GRAND TOUR, including sojourns in France, England (with a side trip to the North American colonies), Germany and Italy.

EARLY MUSIC NEW YORK -- FREDERICK RENZ, Director, concludes its Grand Tour with spring in sunny Italy, where the light that pervades its visual art suffuses its music as well.  Corelli and Vivaldi concertos, sinfonias and overtures will frame a program enriched by contributions from fellow countrymen including Domenico Scarlatti (his virtuosic keyboard sonatas recast as concerti gossi by Charles Avison).
